I love acorn squash. It has such a great texture and taste. Most importantly it is loaded with vitamins A, B, and C. These are important for a healthy immune system, maintains a healthy metabolism, turns carbohydrates into energy, keeps the digestive system healthy, are antioxidants which prevent free radical damage, and helps to prevent disease.
Acorn squash also has potassium,which is essential for maintaining normal blood pressure levels, and is also high in fiber to keep the gut healthy and blood sugar more stable. Roasting is my favorite way to enjoy squashes. I stuffed my squash and paired it with a side of roasted maitake mushrooms and brussels sprouts.

I decided to get a little ambitious with dinner and made myself a home-made cauliflower pizza from scratch! SO tasty! I made it quite a few times, and it gets easier and better each time. Making a good pizza is definitely a practice. I topped my pizza with my favorite vegetable toppings and sprinkled some cheese to give it a nice finish. This hit the spot and it made me so happy.Read More
I am having one of my really great friends over for dinner tonight and decided to make her a wonderful dish with mixed vegetables and pesto chicken.
I had made this dish for a client recently, and it was such a hit!
I couldn’t wait to make it again.
This dish includes the following ingredients:
Raw kale (hiding underneath the yumminess!)
Baby bok choy
Having friends over for dinner and decided to make them a beautiful chuck roast with plenty of vegetables!
This plate offers a beautiful and nutritious roasted plate of foods densely rich in nutrition, loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, lean protein, healthy fat, and fiber.
All of the colors are beautifully put together, if I don’t say so myself??
Presented on the plate are:
Roasted root vegetables (organic carrots, onions, and baby potatoes)
Roasted red onion, shallots, and garlic
Roasted Brussels sprouts
An avocado rose (my first one!!)
Having some friends over and they decided on Fajitas!
I was super excited and my creativity wheels began spinning.
I wanted to obviously keep this meal super healthy and nutritious, but tasty at the same time.
Here is what I came up with!
This yummy vegetable bowl is loaded with important vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients.
It covers a plethora of different flavor profiles, and it’s beautiful!
Eating is an experience.
Make it a great one!
It teaches you to appreciate your food, slow down, and be grateful.
Don’t forget to chew your food well.
This plate is high in protein, fiber, healthy fats, and all of the important micronutrients your body needs to stay healthy and strong and keep your metabolism running on high.
Ingredients for meatballs:
1 pound ground beef
2 handfuls of spinach
1 large carrot, chopped
2 stalks scallion, chopped
3 garlic cloves
2 Tbsp ground flax seed
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp black pepper
Tis’ the season to serve others and share your love of food!
I am so passionate about how whole foods heal and nourish the body. Serving others and yourself food that are rich in nutrients shows a special type of love and caring. It is a little bit more of an effort to prep and cook healthy whole foods, but it is completely worth it.
People are starting to become more aware about the health benefits of eating a diet rich of whole un-processed foods. The rise in the obesity epidemic along with diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, cancers, and more is astounding. Mental illness is shown to be related to an unhealthy gut, stemming from poor eating habits and high stress. It is time we pay a little more attention and give a little extra love and time to take better care of ourselves and others.
This meal is paired perfectly. Creating a well-balanced plate is important to make sure you are getting all of the essential nutrients your body needs to sustain healthy living. This plate has lean protein, vegetables (fiber!), and healthy fats. I always teach my clients to make more than half of their plate vegetables. Pairing meals this way allows you to feel fuller for a longer amount of time by increasing satiety, keeps the digestive system and gut healthy, keeps your metabolism going, feeds your muscles to keep them strong and in fat-burning mode, and stabilizes your blood sugar. The more stable your blood sugar, the less sugar cravings, crashes, and inflammation you will experience.Read More
